We have received the following solidarity appeal from the Swaziland Solidarity Network.
Swaziland has been under state of emergency since 1973. In the last few days a number of leading activists of the Swaziland Youth
Congress have been arrested and tortured. In protest a group of trade unionists and left
activists have now occupied the US embassy in the capital. We appeal to all labour
movement, youth and left-wing activists to express their solidarity with the Swazi
comrades and protest against the repressive actions of the regime.
